At Inchcape we are blessed with the most perfect climate Barbados has to offer and therefore our units do not need acs and most of them don't have acs. Only the Gatehouse 1-bedroom apartment Tower and 1 bedroom in house Sunset downstairs are currently equipped with an ac unit, but also that does not mean that it is really needed. As almost all our guests appreciate that no acs are needed at our location, all our rates are calculated based no ac usage.
As electricity is a very high cost factor in Barbados there is an additional charge of $ US 15 for using the ac from 8 pm to 8 am, 12 hours, and the charge increases to $ 25 when used beyond the 8 hours. The usage of the ac is strictly limited to being used while the guests are inside the room (not inside the apartment), with the corresponding bedroom door closed.
We request to be notified whith each booking in case guests wish to use the ac and trust they will do so the latest upon check in.
Just in case we should have an unusual hot day and the trade winds should not be doing their job, we have fans in all our units.
The Inchcape houses and apartments are located on the most southern point of the island and the cooling breezes of the trades and our proximity to the water provide for a very pleasant, almost perfect climate, never too cold and almost never too hot.
